Practical educational and civic transformation.

“Empowering our students, transforming our community”

DC Tutoring and Mentoring Initiative

We started our work because we saw a problem. 2/3 students in DC read below their grade level. This is unacceptable and we refuse to idly stand by. Our plan is simple: provide a tutor or mentor for every student reading below grade level or in need of additional academic or non-academic support in DC.

Add in extra classroom and after-school support and we could transform education in the city, develop our workforce, reduce crippling downstream social costs, and reverse poverty.
